Daniel Ek ready to launch improved £2bn Arsenal takeover bid

2 min read

Daniel Ek is ‘ready to launch’ a second Arsenal takeover bid of £2billion.

The Spotify CEO saw an initial £1.8billion offer for the club rejected last month and is set to increase his offer to £2billion to test the resolve of the Kroenkes.

Ek said the Arsenal owners told him they “didn’t need the money” after his first attempt, but the Swedish billionaire claims he is “not going anywhere” and is determined to get the deal done.

And the Daily Mail claims Arsenal sources have admitted they are expecting a second offer in the coming days.

Stan Kroenke – who took full control of the club in 2018 – has received stinging criticism for his ownership of the club, with his attempt to join the European Super League allowing Ek the opportunity to take advantage of the public fallout.

Ek went public to state that the offer included fan ownership, representation at board level and a golden share for supporters.

Gunners legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira are also backing the Swede’s bid.

Life-long Arsenal fan Ek received a glowing review from Henry who spoke highly of his plans for the Gunners.

“I know a lot of people wanted to hear about [the takeover],” he told Sky Sports. “It is true. Daniel is an Arsenal fan, he didn’t say it for any publicity. He is an Arsenal fan for a very long time.

“He already – I’ll give you something – reached out [to the Kroenkes] and already said himself that he had collected the funds to make sure that he can put in a good bid.

He added: “I think it is going to be long and not easy – if it does ever happen. One thing that I want to reiterate is that Daniel will not move away, he will be there waiting to see if they want to sell.

“That is going to take a very long time, we know what we want to do, but first and foremost we need to make sure that we can take over, if they are listening.”
